Great team always willing to share knowledge
Fun place to work, requires you to be self driven and manage your assignment, giving regular feedback. Very quick to adopt new changes and supportive to explore different methods to drive continuous improvements.

Difficile pour les femmes
Si on a pas un bon manager, notre carrière reste au point mort. La culture d’entreprise intègre peu de diversité dans son hiérarchie. Les femmes n’ont pas le même vitesse de carrière que les collègues hommes. L’équilibre vis privé et professionnel n’est pas au rdv.

Weak managers and awful life-balance
Whether you will love or hate Amazon will depend on your manager.

While some says that Amazon is innovative and looking for long-terms solution, I got expressly told to look for the lazy short-term solution and stop looking to innovate.


The work life balance is awful. You will mostly eat at your desk in frond the computer.


Moreover, HR are stronly on your manager side and will block you if you try to move between jobs without your manager consent.

No work-life-balance
In your first months in the company, you are mainly trained on the leadership principles, which feels like a total brainwash. After you ramp up, people expect you to put in crazy hours, even if you don't see value in what you're doing. If you start complaining too much, they will put you on a so-called "coaching plan" or "personal improvement plan", to make you feel like you are a total failure and they are only there to help you perform at your best. In reality, they are putting even more pressure on you and if you don't hit the targets, they will have a valid case to fire you.
Pros
Good salary compared to local average
Cons
Your growth oportunities are highly dependent on your manager and this can change frequently

You Earn your Salary
Amazon is a place that people either really love or really hate. The culture there is to work very hard, to innovate, to question, to come up with solutions, not just highlight any perceived problems.

You earn every, single penny you get paid, which to my mind is a good ethic. Amazon has a reputation of not having a good work/life balance and this can be true, but job satisfaction is also very important.


Amazon is a company that teaches you a lot about yourself, your abilities and how far you can push and be pushed. Its a tough experience, but one that will stand you in good stead moving forward....!
Pros
The people, the innovation
Cons
Poor share allocation, overly complicated systems

Fun place with challenging jobs to innovate on behalf of customers
I spent 17 years with Amazon in various Supply Chain, Operations & Finance related Process Engineering & Leadership roles, mostly focused on launching new operations and delivering process standards & cost structure improvements for Amazon’s fulfillment center network. 
My Amazon jobs have been rewarding and fun, making every day at work an experience worth to have.

Challenging and rewarding
I work with some of the smartest people in the world. The intensity and pace of work is very challenging and the compensation is generous to make up for this fact. There is a big problem with the availability of promotions and advancement and that is the only reason I have ever looked outside of the company.

Smart people, inovative culture, fast pace environment
It is impressive how many intelligent people can work in one company. Diversity (in all senses) is welcomed and working with people from so many different backgrounds make my day even more interesting.
It is a fast pace company, no doubt. The Leadership Principles are a clear picture of the company culture. If you relate to it, I strongly recommend to apply for a position at Amazon.
Pros
smart people, great culture

Dynamic, International and challenging working environment!!
Brilliant and high skilled TA peers and leaders from whom I've learned a lot!
It is a faced passed environment, you need to be flexible adapt and be dedicated, but it turned out to be so rewarding!


Breaks in front of the computer usually, but leaving the office around 5-6pm, good life balance for me! Especially considering the flexibility to work from home!


Great training / coaching opportunities. Amazing managers caring, listening and reliable!


International team, nice and warm always eager to help :)

Great Compensation Benefits to go with bad Work/Life balance
Amazing Projects hindered by slow top management decision making. Over reliance on data - paralysis by over analysis. Very few big picture projects and more day to day fire fighting.

Everyday is a new day
Mon travail pour Amazon consiste à porter assistance aux vendeurs utilisant notre plateforme pour faire du commerce. Que ce soit pour une modification de titres ou la fusion de 2 offres identiques en passant par la fermeture de compte et le remboursement client, le job est très varié et aucun cas n'est identique ce qui apporte un certain suspense à chaque fois qu'un nouveau cas arrive dans notre "Lobby".
Ma journée typique se résume à essayer de comprendre au mieux ce que le vendeur souhaite et tenté de répondre de la meilleure façon à sa requête.

Le téléphone et les emails sont les moyens de communication dont je dispose pour communiquer avec nos clients
Pros
Tickets restaurant
